Experience living history on a guided tour of Royal Alcázar of Seville, the oldest royal palace still in use in Europe. Built primarily during the 1300s, this World Heritage–listed site is one of the country’s finest examples of Moorish architecture, featuring a myriad of exquisitely decorated rooms, lavish gardens, paved courtyards, and sparkling ponds. Originally used as a fort, the site was reconstructed and vastly expanded numerous times over the centuries. The upper levels of the palace are still the official Seville residence of Spain’s royal family. When you visit, be sure to check out the room where Christopher Columbus’ journey to the Americas was planned. Advanced tickets are available online. Try to time your trip for one of many musical concerts regularly held in the gardens.

Royal Alcázar of Seville reviews
We pre-booked our tickets online which cost an extra 1 Euro each - I wish I hadn't done this because very few people were visiting when it opened at 9:30am. In fact, we got to explore the Alcazar... more »
Beautiful in every way. We spent four hours there, but could have spent even more had it not been for closing time. more »
I highly recommend visiting the palace! Even in the winter months the gardens are interesting and varied, weaving in through the various courtyards. The rooms themselves hold many incredible details, but are never so large that they lose their intimacy. I only wish we allotted more time! Make sure to buy tickets online, which many reviews mention. We took the advice and breezed right in. You are definitely going to need three hours to comfortably experience all of the palace. It's worthwhile to enjoy all it has at a relaxed pace.
Beautiful palace in the centre of Sevilla. Easy to find and is close to other attractions and restaurants in the centre. Impressive textiles and structures to admire. It’s very easy to spend many hours here on a warm day. There are many gardens and peacocks that makes for a relaxing atmosphere. Buy tickets before hand to avoid the long line ( which starts early). The line can be roughly an hour to wait but we’ll worth it.
